Word on the Web

In whose name? We go in the name of Jesus, the one who is the Son of Man, the one who is the only Saviour of the world, the one who is the only name under heaven by which anybody can be saved. But do you know what? People need to be told about that in order to be able to believe in him. What a challenge out of the mouth of an unbeliever! ‘Tell me, so that I may believe in him.' Let that challenge ring out in your hearts as you think about where you are going back to after the Keswick Convention.
‘Do you believe in the Son of Man?' If we believe that Jesus is the one who is to be worshipped by all, who will judge the world and who is the only one who can save us, it will affect how we live. It will enable us to overcome those challenges about feeling we are being intolerant. We won’t be intolerant because we can speak about him in a way that respects people who disagree. We can overcome that fear we might be arrogant. We don’t have to be arrogant at all. It is just as arrogant to say that Jesus is not the way. We can overcome the fear that somehow we might be discriminatory. Let’s not discriminate against anyone. Let’s tell the world about this Son of Man. If we believe that Jesus is the one who is to be worshipped it will affect how we live.
